Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is testifying before Congress again on Wednesday, following the controversial and highly publicized Cambridge Analytica data breach.
Zuckerberg testified before the Senate for roughly five hours on Tuesday, marking the first time the Facebook founder has testified in front of Congress personally rather than sending a deputy. His testimony Wednesday will be at the House of Representatives.
Zuckerberg’s testimony covered topics including Facebook’s reported exploitation of users’ personal information to improve targeted advertising. It also touched on how the Trump-affiliated data mining firm Cambridge Analytica obtained the data of 87 million users, as well as Russia’s attempts to utilize Facebook to disrupt the U.S. presidential elections. Wednesday’s hearing is expected to cover similar issues.

In prepared testimony released on Monday by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Zuckerberg apologized for the data breach and numerous scandals that have plagued the company in recent months.
“We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake,” he said in the video. “It was my mistake, and I’m sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I’m responsible for what happens here.”
